My Weekday Routine

Friday, March 4, 2016
Casual workday outfit
One of the best parts of working for yourself is that no two days are the same; some are spent glued in front of the computer all day in plaid pyjamas, while others are spent running between meetings and shoots. Regardless of what each day may hold, however, my mornings all generally start the same, which is why I thought it would be fun to walk you through a typical workday for me. I like to reserve mornings for writing blog posts, answering emails, planning, and shooting products at home, while my afternoons are left open for meetings, errands and outfit shoots. It's taken me a while to find a work rhythm that I feel comfortable with and that enhances my productivity, but this is definitely working for me so far.
coffee and Instagram
6:30am — Hit snooze. 
7am — Get up, feed the animals and make coffee. 
7:20am — Check my email, scroll through Instagram and catch up on my favourite blogs. 
TRESemme Beauty-Full Volume Shampoo and Conditioner
8am — Jump in the shower and get ready for the day.

I recently tried TRESemmé's new volume-boosting system, which was specifically formulated to work in reverse; that's right friends, I'm talking condition first, shampoo second. I had heard about this reverse-approach to washing hair before and about how amazing it is for pumping up the volume, and let's just say I wish I had started using this technique sooner! I start by applying a couple pumps of the TRESemmé Beauty-Full Volume Pre-Wash Conditioner throughout my hair, massaging from root to tips. It's formulated to bind to hair cuticles to protect and soften while you move on to the shampooing stage, and it smells amaaazing. The Beauty-Full Volume Shampoo itself is designed to clean hair while leaving a light, conditioning layer on the surface of the hair, which is what gives it so much body and shine. In fact, ever since I started washing with the Beauty-Full Volume Collection, my hair has had a lot more movement and body throughout the day, which is amazing for me because my hair is typically flat by 3pm... sad but true.

9am — Start workday. 
On this particular day I wrote two blog posts, shot the photos for another, and went through emails.
Work space
12pm — Break for lunch and a walk to the park with Brousko. 
1pm — Quick call with Anton to go over the afternoon's schedule.
1:15pm — Touch up my makeup and spray my hair with TRESemmé's Flexible Finish Hairspray to make sure it's photo-ready
(I carry it around with me in case of emergencies!).

1:45pm — Meet up with Anton at our favourite coffee shop for a team meeting (and let's be real, an Instagram session).

From there, I run any errands that I need to and head home to make dinner. Evenings are generally spent relaxing with Mr. AiF and catching up on our favourite shows (right now we're all about Love, Better Call Saul, and reruns of The Office), which is always my favourite part of the day.

Thanks for reading friends, and I hope you enjoyed this look into my workday! xx

  1. Loved this post, it's great to get an insight into the daily schedule of a fellow blogger. Been trying to get more organized as well, but with an infant at home it's been quite difficult :)
    Oh, and by the way, I love your hair <3
